Nothing gives me such simultaneous joy and grief as selecting my top discs of the year. The task is akin to choosing your favorite child. Regretfully, I give you (in no particular order) my top 12. Please email mail me separately if you want my top 30 and include your top discs, I may want to spend my Christmas money on a few more titles.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
